Been meaning to post these for while These trees can kill you ... If you have a pre-existing condition like a weak heart or high blood pressure they a re best avoided
This particular tree is just across the creek from home about 20mts away, fortunately I have never been stung but Baz has !!! Actually put him in hospital for a few hours.
I keep my eyes out at all times for these .... Anything remotely like it gets a wide berth
This is a clip from the show "Bite Me" where the guy touches it on purpose for the sake of science !!!! Not a very good copy ... But the best I could find
